When we opened Sin City 13 years ago it was a much simpler era, Twitter didn’t exist, hashtags weren’t a thing, Pluto was still a planet, iPhones were just a concept and the incredible artists Bowie, Winehouse, Cohen and Prince were still with us. Oh how things have changed.

But here at Sin, we’ve tried to roll with the ages. Sitting in the heart of Swansea, our 750 capacity venue has had some of the most exciting new artists to play live such as Ed Sheeran, Ben Howard, Lower Than Atlantis, Example, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Pendulum (Live), Ferris & Sylvester, Frank Turner, Plan B, Black Stone Cherry and now we are embracing the new age of indie.

We’ve kept up with the times, but our ethics have never changed. Sin City has been independent for almost a year now and we endeavour to carry on providing a venue for people who just want to go a gig with their friends and do away with the glitz and glam of taking 5 hours to get ready for a night out. Sod that. Wear what you want, be who you want to be and listen to the music you love. We aren’t a venue for over priced drinks and generic music, we are a venue for YOU.
